    I hope this is allowed cuz I just ate it lol

    I used 1/3 cup heavy cream and mixed it with 2 packs of xylitol, you can use whatever sweetner you use

    and then mixed in about 1/3 cup fresh blueberries and poured into a small remekin(think about 1/2 cup size) froze for a bit over a hour and ate!

    So rich and creamy! sort of like ice cream! yum

    now I hope it isn't a big NO NO!

    I had blueberries with only cream y'day, it tasted great. Where do you get heavy cream. I haven't been able to find any in the stores that didn't have carageenan. I had to use the cream that was floating at the top of my raw milk.

    Do yourself a favor and ditch the xylitol and use frozen, unsweetened blueberries. They are plenty sweet when frozen, and as a bonus, the cream will freeze on contact.

    Sprinkle some cinnamon on the cream in place of the xylitol. I think you'll like it!

    oh yes. blueberries n cream, blackberries n cream, peaches n cream.


    I found a heavy cream without carageenan at Whole Foods and I believe the brand name is Clover Farms. The only ingredient listed is cream.

    Personally I'd probably use the xylitol too. I sometimes use erythritol, but more often stevia.


    My store brand heavy cream doesn't have careageenan either. I haven't used heavy cream in a while after my discovery of coconut milk.

    I'm only seen it listed as heavy whipping cream in most stores. But it's just great without anything added over berries.

    I think the sooner we all get off of sweeteners in general, the better.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    @primalgoddess: Mark is a blueberry proponent. I've found them disastrous for weight loss, even in moderation, even w/o cream! Too many sugar carbs. But yeah, if you can deal with all that, a lot healthier than commercial ice cream. And I won't diss you for the Xylitol!


    @Primalchild: Yeah, sure, but does it really matter? Our bodies are geared to liking - loving? - sweet things, so why not honor that and not deprive if the use is minimal and logical. Although some religious and dietary sects would equate suffering with saintliness, I don't.


    Xylitol: An alcohol sugar, natural from birch trees. Kills mouth bacteria. Some calories, no insulin reaction.


    Erythritol: Another alcohol sugar. No calories for all practical purposes. No insulin reaction.


    Stevia: A natural extract, some aftertaste. Heat stable. (I just learned that and might try it next time in a BBQ sauce. Last sauce I used Splenda because it is heat stable.)


    All things in moderation.


    Carageenan is a seaweed extract to thicken the cream. No big deal, that's for sure. W/o lots of investigation perhaps that's how they get "heavy" cream. I always wondered how cream could be a mix of molecular weights! Guess not.
